My wife and I have tremendous gratitude that God granted us the privilege to explore this world and experience His greatness.

Just as Jesus walked the Earth ministering step-by-step, these photos represent my lifelong journey in which God’s sovereignty ministered to me through the lens of my camera.

I believe that every photo tells a unique story – a snapshot of a place or person in that one moment in time, which cannot be replicated.

Jesus knew the power of story telling as he used parables to teach us great truths.

My wife and I feel called by God to share our photos with you and also the stories that that went into making each image. Thus, every photo includes a brief description of the location and the particular behind-the-scene story to help you feel as if you are hiking (trekking) right alongside us in a tropical rainforest, or flying in a helicopter next to me with the doors off.

The Scripture Pictures Team, pray that the photos on this site bless you and that the scriptures encourage you!

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

What is my vision for Scripture Pictures?

My purpose is to share the power of scriptures coupled with the magnificence of God’s creation, as captured through my lifetime collection of photographic images. I believe the Lord gives us signs of Heaven on Earth, and I am humbled that God has allowed me to witness and photograph many divine experiences. 

As a Christian photographer who has trekked throughout the globe, I have seen Psalm 24:1 come alive before me: “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.”

This is how my “scripture pictures” came to be.

I pray that my photos bless and encourage you!

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Do you long to serve God but don’t feel “good enough” or “smart enough”?

But God wants us to be available – not able. The Lord Himself will equip us for the ministries that He has ordained for us.

 

Why not ask God today for direction about where He wants you to serve?

What is success? Here is how Sarah Young in her devotional book, Jesus Calling, describes it:

“People usually associate victory with success: not falling or stumbling, not making mistakes. But those who are successful in their own strength tend to go their own way, forgetting about me. It is through problems and failure, weakness and  neediness that you rely upon Me…….This is not a path of continual success but of multiple failures. However, each failure is followed by a growth spurt, nourished by increased reliance on Me.”

(January 5th devotional, Jesus Calling)

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team pray that we all bring our wants, needs and desires to the foot of the cross where all healing and hope are found.

Pastor Justin Floyd: Scripture Pictures

On Sunday, Dec. 13, 2015, Pastor Justin Floyd, the Youth Pastor at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH), preached his last sermon. He accepted a calling to a church in Georgia and will be moving this week, along with his dear wife, Catie.

Pastor Justin is truly loved by everyone at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH). His warmth, wisdom, dedication and sense of humor makes him a one-of-a-kind pastor. We have been blessed to have him serve as pastor at our church!

Here is a collage of photos of Pastor Justin from the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) that shows his wonderful personality! The beautiful woman in the photo is his precious wife, who serves alongside him.

Please say a prayer for Pastor Justin as he relocates from the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) to his new church home in Georgia!

In Christ’s Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S. The First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) is the church home for Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team.

Struggling with forgiveness?

Here is what Joel Osteen writes about forgiveness in his daily devotional on September 3rd:

Forgive Others

“As followers of Christ, our character should mirror His character. We should be helpful, kind and tender, understanding and loving to one another. Most of all, we should be extending forgiveness in the same way that Christ extends forgiveness toward us. In other words, we need to forgive unconditionally. But many times, people say they won’t forgive until the other person says they are sorry. Or, they won’t forgive because they think somehow they are getting that person back.                                                                                But the only person who is hurt by your unforgiveness is you! When you hold unforgiveness, it blocks God’s forgiveness and keeps you locked up in the hurt and pain.”

For a larger view, click on the Scripture Pictures photo of Isaiah 61:7 called: “Double the Honor!”

Instead of your shame, you will have double the honor…and everlasting joy will be yours.

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry under an old, abandoned bridge “that leads to nowhere” close to an isolated strip of beach near Ventura, California. The rushing ocean surf reminds Henry of God’s power to heal us of our shame and open our hearts to forgiveness of others.

Scripture Pictures at AACC in Nashville

IMG_50161 Scripture Pictures at AACC in Nashville

Patti from the Scripture Pictures Team and her colleague, Christian counselor, John Derenski, MA, MFT, presented a workshop on Internet and Emotional Affairs at the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) “Be Strong” conference in Nashville (from Sept. 23rd through the 26th). The conference was held at the Opryland Hotel.

About 7,000 people attended the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) “Be Strong” conference.

If you are near the Nashville area, you might want to check out the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC)  conference website and sign-up for some of the amazing workshops for 2017 (the conference is held every two years).

Soooooo many amazing Christian speakers and singers shared at the AACC conference – John Townsend, Jeremy Camp, Joni Eareckson-Tada, John Hagee, John Ortman, Tim Clinton….and so many more.

Patti and John want to thank all of you who prayed for them and their presentation at the AACC conference.

Here is a photo of Patti and John right before they gave their workshop. John’s wife, Dorie, took the photo. Dorrie also speaks with John in various Christian workshops.

In Christ’s Footsteps,

Henry & Patti

Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

Scripture-Pictures-52Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

As Christians, we’re called to be thankful in all situations. Although we may not have power over many of the events that happen in our lives, we still have the choice to respond to situations with a bitter spirit or a grateful heart.

Some Biblical quotes on gratitude include:

Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” 

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Ways to  increase our personal gratitude:

– Start a daily gratitude journal by listing 3 things you are grateful to have in your life.

– Send a note to your pastors thanking them specifically for how they minister to you.

– Write an e-mail or text to thank  five people who have impacted your life.

– Volunteer in your community and observe how  people are thankful for what little they have.

In His Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team
